The post is principally clinical, but has many different and very interesting aspects to it. The Wiltshire ECT Team is based at Green Lane Hospital, Devizes and covers the 3 district general hospitals of Salisbury District Hospital, Royal United Hospital Bath and Great Western Hospital Swindon to provide a service for those patients requiring ECT who are more complex regarding their physical health needs. This makes the team the most peripatetic service in England and a busy one with 39 referring consultant psychiatrists. The team is also unique in that we do not have an upper age limit for patients receiving ECT. 

Wiltshire ECT team is a high achieving team having received an Excellence rating at ECTAS audits for the last 9 years. The team regularly drives innovation and change at national level and we are influential in changes in ECT practice by having team members who sit on national boards. 

Previous work in an ECT clinic is not essential as all training will be given on the job but a willingness to embrace the role and strive for continued excellence is essential. The base is at Green Lane hospital, the covering of the clinics in the 3 district general hospitals is shared between the team members. Clinics usually start at 8am but occasionally due to delays in the district general hospitals you may be required to work beyond 4pm. The team currently does not provide a service on Bank holidays.
